This article deals with the history and present of Baltic linguistics in Japan. The authors describe the field, showing achievements in research made by Japanese specialists in Baltic languages over three generations. Japanese universities still do not have any department of Baltic studies; therefore all the specialists are forced to conduct linguistic research on Lithuanian, Latvian and Old Prussian 'in private', while officially teaching English or Russian at their own universities. In Japan it is generally easy to find academic books related to the Baltic linguistics published in USA, Europe and Russia; however, since the independence of the Baltic States from the Soviet Union in 1991 the Japanese market have lost the official importing route of publications from Lithuania and Latvia. In other words, as far as gaining information about the Baltic languages is concerned Japan is still 'isolated' from the Baltic States.
